I must have been there on a good night (Thursday) because I thought the food was outstanding. We were guests visiting friends in Corvallis. This was the first place they took us thinking we would enjoy the upscale environment. For a very hot evening (95 degrees plus) this providing a cool and relaxing place to spend a few hours. Now...

I decided to give this another try and brought an out of town visitor. It not only took almost an hour to get our food -- the appetizers came out with the meal. They were completely cold. The food was not good - it had obviously sat around also. The blond waitress is dumb as a rock and used profanity... More

We had some out of town guests rather unplanned and they we thought we could go to town and get a bite to eat and send them away with a nice meal. It was a Monday night and we thought to try Magenta on second street. The town was dead on Monday night and there were few customers. I am... More

It's difficult to put one label on Magenta's cuisine - it's mostly Asian, maybe Southeastern, mainly - but it's definitely "Fusion" fare. By that, I mean, Magenta has a very creative chef whose imagination isn't limited to one region. This is a great place to go for that romantic dinner or a gathering with friends. While they have a entree... More

With both a dinner and a Dim Sum menu Magenta is good for a romantic dinner or just out for a drink after work. The wine list is a bit expensive but offers a good selection of local, domestic, and foreign wines. The dim sum menu features smaller portions of the main menu plus many other appetizer sized portions. Frankly,... More

We came here as a group and ordered almost every item on the small plates menu. They all looked so good we couldn't decide! Everything was fantastic, service was excellent.

The menu is diverse but very very expensive. The food was ok, but the smell of incense ruined it. The staff was good, the ambiance ok except for the smell.

Tried this restaurant on recommendations from several friends. We were not disappointed. Since we weren't familiar with most offerings, we went with the dim sum menu. Figured $4 per plate wasn't that much of a risk. We each ordered three dishes as the waiter recommended, and it was just right for lunch. Everything was very tasty and interesting with some... More

This was our fourth time at Magenta. The food is always good and the service is always bad. It's like they haven't been trained or have ever worked in the service industry. They seem disinterested in their customers. Not attentive, not paying attention, no smiling, lots of walking by without eye contact, slow, no questions, no checking back, etc. Very... More

I visit often when I am in town and always impressed. If you haven't tried their breakfast yet it is delicous. Crab benny, Seafood, Bob and Salsa are some of my favorites. I also enjoy their happy hour menu..
